Armco's revised drop-in/visiting hours are working well!  Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, at least for now, plus Saturday 9-12 and 1-3 gives us those times to visit, and talk.  It has turned out to be a highlight of my week.  As before if you're traveling through we can make other arrangements  :)  We still take a break from answering the phone on Tuesdays and Thursdays and that has really upped productivity, too!   Thanks, guys!!  (and ladies:)

  Jean and I have decided it's time to cut back a little on shooting (and guns) so will be selling a few:  some tricked out revolvers, my slicked-up Custom Tokarev, MAYBE Jean's 9x40 Open gun.......
   
Coming - (some pics on the Index page):   a Beretta 45 six-shooter, CZ Tactical Sport, tricked out CZ SP01... These are enroute here now, expected this week...

 

Here now, pics soon  : ...Caspian custom 45 1911 lower, Browning Hi-Power Mark III 9mm..

 

   
  Restricted Handguns: 
  Just in - an as-new (this year, 20 rounds fired) Sig Sauer P220 Elite stainless 45.   Rosewood grips, short reset trigger (gun has been tuned here, too!),  night sights, everything it came with - $1399 - trades?   On hold :)
  Check out the cool Webleys here - part of a collection coming in a bit at a time (for insurance purposes)- will be posting as time allows  :)
  This Mark VI in 455 is absolutely pristine inside - shows a little wear to the outside but very nice for its age.  Tight as new with a gleaming bore, this is a shooter as well as a very desirable collector's item  - $690 - Trades?  Sold  :)
  This WG Webley Target model of 1889 is in 476/455 caliber and should qualify as an antique as soon as I can get the paperwork done  :) Initially purchased on October 7th, 1891...
  This marvelous Colt "Mid-range" Gold Cup in 38 Special  shows some use but is perfect inside.  All of the shooting was done with the included Pachmayr grips, so the original Colt walnut grips are new, and pretty.  Two original mags and one aftermarket one makes for a nice bonus as they are really hard to come by...I have one of these myself and it is really a delight to shoot, so soft and accurate  :)  This one is going to make you a better shooter, too, mine did for me!  It wears a Millett front sight as did a lot of these wonderful bullseye guns - $1290 - trades?
  Another Webley WG, this one the Army Model and in .455/476 caliber (still shoots 455 Webley).  This one was purchased from Holland & Holland, shows some exterior wear, but has a pristine bore and innards, great trigger action and and lovely tight lock-up  :)  I should be able to de-register this one no problem...A chip off the grip, but I have new ones  :)  On hold, Josh  :)
  Another WW1 revolver that I really want for myself  :)  This is the Smith & Wesson  Hand Ejector MarkII Second Model in 455 Webley caliber.  Unaltered in any way, with a very shiny bore and as-new internals.  Shows very little shooting ...   I see no military markings so likely a civilian purchase.  $890 - trades?
  This Hi-Power 9mm is the Argentine FM version and has been extensively customized by Clarence here: Gorgeous crisp trigger ($200 worth of Cylinder & Slide pieces), slide tightened to frame and barrel accurized plus magazine disconnect removed, adjustable Tactical STI rear sight and dovetailed front, accessory rail & finger groove Hogue grips - $749 - trades? This pistol is exceptionally tight and accurate!
 
 
 
  Here is an unfired Girsan 9mm (these are very well-built clones of the Beretta 92 series) with three mags and Beretta Presentation grips - $499 - trades?
  This is a real find! an immaculate AMT Hardballer 45 dating from the mid-'80's and completely original, box and all  :)  Appears test fired only, and this one is wonderfully tight (that means use a good lube :).  tRIGGER PULL IS quite NICE - $899 - TRADES?
  An as-new tuned STI Spartan lower - set up for 9mm (can be set up for 40 or 45)  Now $399 complete with slide stop and magazine ..
  Saying this is special doesn't even start to do it justice.  I have never seen an example this nice of a 1903 Pocket Model Colt 38 "Rimless Smokeless" in a museum or book.  Also known as the Model 1903 Pocket Hammer .38, much scarcer than the 6" military models, this is a 4.5", made in 1917, with a shorter grip and magazine than the more common military model.  Has been fired, but likely less than a box, and handling wear is extremely light, with a perfect bore and internals.  Ammo - .38 ACP, NOT 38 Super - is still readily available..Now $1890 - trades welcome.
   
   Rimfire Handguns:
   
   
  Another jewel of a High Standard 22 target pistol - this one is the mid-range Supermatic model, nice adjustable sights, shows a bit of use, but I don't know of any of these ever worn out  :) More accurate and reliable even than the famed Ruger Target model, this is offered at $349 - Trades?  Compare the take-down of these to the Ruger, too - night anmd day, with the barrel that comes off with one push of a button!
  Beretta Neos 22  - barely fired - $329 - trades?  I also have 4 extra factory mags (new $60) at $40 each  :)
  A NICE Ruger Mark 1 Standard 22 with the easy-to-hit-with 6 7/8" barrel.  One magazine - $229 - trades?
A prohibited (4") Browning Buckmark 22 in the stainless finish - appears new in the original box, papers, 2 mags - a lovly plinker if you have a 12(6) licence...$349 - trades?  No tax on this one!
Here is one of the sought-after High-Standard Supermatic "Trophy" models fitted with an Aimpoint/Ron Power scope/red dot sight mount - 2 mags, papers,  lovely bore and action - $469 - trades?
 
Prohibs:
This Bernardelli Model 60 is a .32 (7.65) pocket pistol that's unfired - one mag, marvelous condition, comes with the best trigger pull I've ever felt on a pocket pistol!  $149 - trades?
And this 4" Python is absolutely gorgeous - one-owner, unfired, original box and papers with the 1983 registration papers.  Has 2 pairs of Hogue exotic (Pao Ferro and Rosewood) grips and a rubber set (in case he ever decided to go shooting with it) as well as the mint factory ones, six HKS Speedloaders and the Safariland belt clips for them - $1790 - Trades? 
 Some of my own - no tax... all these are 12(6) Prohibs...
All right - time to lose this Model 66-2 Smith & Wesson - and this one is special!  2.5" barrel, round butt - and what a butt!  A gorgeous looking (and feeling) Hogue exotic wood grips as well as the stockers, and a pair of Hogue rubber ones for casual shooting.   Tuned and slicked up inside of course  :)  This one really impresses with magnum loads although I tend to shoot mostly 38 Specials - $800 - no tax  :)
  This is a lovely 380 Beretta Model 1934 that I had Jim Ford restore for me a while back  because I am fascinated by 380's - and because this Beretta fits my hand so well.  Shoots great, looks good, not original, but so what? I hear Mussolini used to own this one - well, one like it  :)  now $250 no tax  :)
  This is a Star Model SI in .32 (7.65) and its holster, second magazine, and locked-breech (miniature 1911) action is a joy to shoot.  All-steel and very well made, not one of the potmetal pistols so common from post-war Europe...$349 - trades?  No tax  :)
  These Basque autos are Spanish-made and actually shoot rather well.  I used to own a .32 many years ago and recall it as being a decent shooter.  Not of the same quality as a PPK, naturally, but very usable.  This one is in .380 and is a little more serious than the .32's. Box, 2 mags...now $149, no tax - Trades? 
  MAB Modele R - a 32acp French pistol very close to the Model D that is the common civilian version, but built for military use, with an exposed hammer and lanyard ring.  Very few of these were made as the army went to 9mm shortly after,  and today it is much rarer than the D series..small crack in the right grip by the top screw, lovely bore and internals  Now $199 - no tax 
   
  LONG GUNS: 
   
  I'm looking for more 22 rifles like this Cooey Model 75- for a local summer camp shooting program.  Anyone wants to add rifle shooting to youngsters' canoeing and campfire building skills, I'm all for it!  These will be donated, so please don't expect me to pay a lot :)  Cooey single shot 22's preferred as then the training (and parts situation) is simplified...  I will accept basket cases for parts as well... Hurray - now have 6!
   
  Gorgeous 22 Hornet single shot Anschutz model 1700 wearing a Bushnell 4200 Elite 6-24 scope.  Double set triggers, lovely condition, has not been fired much at all.  $1790 - trades?  Comes with a lovely $80 soft rifle case...(and two boxes of factory ammo for a local buyer :)  Would separate rifle and scope at $1400/$450....
  Now this is really gorgeous!  A Sako 85L Bavarian in 7mm Magnum with a breath-taking piece of wood and Sako's usual smooth action and flawless metal work.  The scope was a Zeiss Conquest HD5 in 2-10X42 (Now gone) with $180 worth of Sako Opti-lock bases and rings Still on the rifle) - wow!   $1890 with bases and rings but without scope.  (If you miss out on this one, you can find one at Grouse River at $2139 plus rings and bases  :)  This one has been fired but it's hard to tell...
 

A mint unfired John Rigby 275 Model 98 Sporter, complete with the best QD claw mounts made (worth a small fortune alone).  This rifle is gorgeous (and should be for the over $9000 retail price).  Now $6490 - Trades welcome..

 

  OK, here's my pride and joy - my Savage-based custom 1000 yard rifle with  only 1850 rounds on it (works pretty darn well at shorter distances, too!)  27" stainless Krieger barrel, custom-fitted laminated stock, left hand oversize bolt handle (I shoot right handed but prefer to work the bolt left-handed like a lot of right-handers, keeping my grip intact), tactical rings, wonderful trigger, Stony Point OAL gauge, Redding competition die set (over $300), lots of Lapua brass,  Sierra 142 grain Match kings, other assorted match bullets, everything but powder (H1000) and primers - scope is gone, so  $1400 without scope - no Tax.  This rifle also works like a charm for left-handers, of course!
  Virtually new - 6 rounds on it - Savage Model 16 SS/Synthetic in 22-250 - New, these are $830 without the bases - this one is $699 with weaver rails, ready for your scope and rings  - trades? As you would expect, this one has the marvelous accu-trigger and is immaculate!
  Smith & Wesson Model 1500 rifle in 30-06 Caliber.  This very nice rifle was built by Showa and mounts a 3-9 scope and a lovely leather sling.  Shows very little use, and was obviously well cared for - Now $549 - trades? 
  I just love these Savage Model 99's - the first one I shot was an early one in 250-30000 and was I ever impressed!  This is a later Model 99-c (Detachable "clip") in 308 but still built the old way and still slim, graceful, and deadly accurate, especially for a lever gun.  Stock sights plus a nice, weaver rail mounted peep sight with interchangeable aperture (wonderful for those of us with less than perfect eyesight) .  Very nice wood - could Jim Ford ever make this thing gorgous!  - $699 - trades?
  A great shooting 270WSM stainless Weatherby Vanguard with 1" rings, ready for your scope - decent trigger, a few scuffs but so what? These are some of the most under-rated hunting rifles made (By Howa in Japan)   Now $549 Trades? 
  12(5) Dae Woo Max II in 5.56 (223)  $899 - trades?  These rifles are in my estimation superbly engineered and built, much better quality than either the M16 or AK47/74 of its era.  Takes AR mags, the folder is solid and easy to use, sights very usable, better ergonomics than any of the popular ones today - too bad it's a 12(5) prohib!!  Hey!  Maybe the Feds will make this non-restricted....
  64-B Cooey 22 semi-auto.   I know you can buy new plastic 22's today for $200.... but what do you get?  These things are built to last - and they do!  Not brand new but nice bore and innards - $199 - trades?
  This is very rare - an unfired Lakefield-Mossberg single-shot 22.  Perfect for training youngsters - such a difference from the plastic ones available today - $199 - trades?
  And here's that nice older Remington single-shot 12 gauge (2 3/4") shotgun - $139 - trades?  Who am I kidding- Trades?
  Remember those gorgeous little Browning Semi-automatic 22 rifles? This one is a Norinco one and actually pretty nice!  I've used these for parts for a broken Belgian one, too!  $169 - Trades?
  Brand new in box - Maverick 12 gauge Model 88 with 2 barrel options, Field and "Security" slug barrels - $299 - trades?
  And... Neat stuff!!
   
  This is a very versatile pancake holster - can be used right or left handed - so far I've tried a Beretta, a SIG P226, an HK compact (perfect length for the extended barrel), and a Glock 22.  A perfect fit for the Argentine Hi-power above, too! I'd use it with any of these  :)    Would work with a 1911 if the belt was drawn up nice and tight  :)  $40...

  Here is a NIB Tru-Glo sight set (Tritium plus fiber-optic so a night and day set-up  :) for the Kimber 1911 $80
  The parts only - no receiver  :(   This is one of the AP-80 22LR AK47 look-alikes that the RC MP says are prohibs.  If they want the receiver, fine, but they're only getting that  :)   It was registered as non-restricted and they can't put it into 12(5), although they won't leave it as non-restricted either.    HMMM.       I want $200 for all but the receiver - would make a great Krinker Plinker.  I'm sure you can figure out how to mount the pieces on your 10-22...

  SOLD GUNS ETC.  
  A wonderful S&W K-22 "Masterpiece" made around 1955 and appears to have had only a box or two of 22's through it.  This is a 5 screw like the pre-war ones, and is not pristine, but darn nice.  $790 - trades? Sold, Josh  :)

  This Vostok 22 single shot target 22 is so neat - perfectly balanced, fantastic sights, very nice trigger.  World-class wood - well not really  :)  In the Communist era, they cared about performance, not looks - and does it ever perform!  Manual, sight inserts, perfect bore and innards.  Show your buddy his Anschutz isn't the only game in town  :)  Now $219 - trades?  Sold  Allie  :)

  This is a lovely Bushmaster XM-15E2S Law Enforcement model in 223 from before the Remington take-over. Very nice trigger, sling, ,manual, case, 2 mags, the bolt locking lugs show so little wear, I'd say a box or two at most has passed through this one. $1249 - trades?  Sold, Myles  :)

  This 45 Colt Pietta 1873 with 5.5" barrel was worked over by Clarence for me and is sooo smooth!  It also shoots really tight groups right at point of aim with my favourite load using 230 Grain lead 45 ACP bullets, and I always had lots of them.  Excellent with 265's as well, but about 1 1/4" high and left at 100 yards...  OK, OK, at 25 yards!.   $450, trades?  No tax on this one either  :)  Gone, Scott  :)
